Ivan is a fantastic Painter, he has paitence and experience and actually enjoys it, well not the celings - then I guess no-one does. Yesterday he did the whole ceiling in Matt's double room (two coats) - it looks fantastic.
Dad and I stayed out of the way and worked on our own 'little' project - the cornice in the new passage and Elizabeth's room - this is our wall.
The finished, plastered, messy thing is completed. It looks horrible at this stage, but all this plastering will be sanded and smoothed and then when it is painted it will look like it has always been there.
